Hey Loves! I organized and hosted ‘The Washington Naturals Presents: Love the Hair You Wear’ this past Sunday and you know I have to tell you guys all about it! The event was a complete success and everyone enjoyed themselves.
We had everything from an eyebrow demo by Tiffani, a hair show with models, an awesome blogger panel with Yolanda Renee Brandi Lofton and Melissa from NappStar. There were even vendors, a photo installation from Lavan, and drinks from Dusse!
‘Meet the Washington Naturals’ was a photo project that celebrity photographer, Lavan Anderson orchestrated featuring 20 D.C. naturalistas in one photo. So we decided to have an event for the DC area!
The goal of this event was for the natural hair community to come together, embrace and learn about their natural hair, increase self-esteem, and have a good time. And guys we did just that! Lavan did an amazing photo installation:
